Damon Photographer





I’m Damon; a commercial photographer specializing in product photography and I have a centrally located Christchurch studio. I particularly enjoy photographing the difficult stuff; like blacks, stainless-steel, glass and translucent’s.  I will instill a positive vibe into your product or brand.

This Ngai Tahu Clams is one of my favourite images. The Kete bag in sunlight looks deceptively simple, but actually required a complex studio setup; creating a ‘shaft of dappled sunlight’ and painstakingly arranging ‘selected’ Clams to cascade within the bag. This subject could have been done much quicker, but the result would not look anything like this.

Most of my day to day photography involves capturing manufactured products from New Zealand businesses. My difference is simply that I make my clients look a lot better than the other’s.

As an example I have a client who sells Home-wares in Amazon USA. They sell the same items as other sellers, yet they are a lot more successful than them, because they re-brand and I make their Amazon photo’s. The increased sales make a little extra in photography cost a very sound investment.

The slideshow below shows some everyday product photographs. It is making products stand out with a high quality vibe & appeal that drives my client’s success. Consistently producing this higher quality of photography requires custom lighting and more effort.
